By
September 5, 2009
The iTunes store gets a much needed face-lift in this release.

I've always had a love/hate relationship going with iTunes. On one hand I've loved the sheer amount of content I could get from it. Movies, music, audiobooks, iPhone apps...there's just a ton of stuff available in the iTunes store. But I've also been annoyed by its slowness, clunky interface and various other things.

Blizzard’s world of greedcraft!

By
September 1, 2009
What's in a name? Well about $10 according to Blizzard's greedy executives.

In one of my last columns I pointed out 5 Reasons Why World of Warcraft Doesn’t Suck. Patch 3.2 added some great stuff and helped improve playability considerably. Unfortunately, World of Warcraft is a business and so it’s not always about playability. Sometimes it’s all about profit and greed. Yes, greed. Naked, in-your-face, over-the-top,...

By
September 1, 2009
An alleged screenshot of Google's Chrome OS. No way to know if it's real or not.

The Great Linux Mint Political Train Wreck

Fart Wars: iFart Mobile Versus the Ultimate Fart Machine

By

iFart Mobile

Flatulence is a universal thing. We all pass gas because we’re human and when we’re not doing it then we’re getting ready to do it by consuming more food and having that food do its thing in our digestive system. So it’s no surprise that flatulence has arrived with a vengeance on the iPhone,...
